the most asked question from visitors is, “Where’s the best place to get fresh seafood?” There are so many delicious and fresh seafood options in our area it’s hard to name just a few. Here are our 5 favorite Gulf to table restaurants on 30A!

Stinkys Fish Camp

Stinky’s Fish Camp

Stinky’s has become 30A’s most popular seafood and wine bar. Unlike the name, Stinky’s is known for using the freshest of ingredients for its handcrafted, Chef-driven recipes. “Oysters All Day All Ways” is one of our favorite sections on the menu. Gulf-to-table seafood baskets can be prepared to your liking, grilled, blackened, or fried.

The Bay

The Bay

This family-friendly waterfront restaurant features delicious Southern Gulf Coast cuisine as well as fresh sushi. Overlook the Choctawhatchee Bay while dining on fresh seafood dishes such as Pesto Snapper with Crab Cakes and Grouper Ravioli. The Bay is not only known for Gulf-to-table fresh seafood but also for its contemporary cocktails, excellent wine selection, and 12 different beers on draft.

Goatfeathers Seafood

Goatfeathers Seafood Market & Restaurant

We love Goatfeathers for its “nothing fancy always quality” motto. Freshly cut fish from the restaurant’s own market as well as homemade sauces and soups never disappoint. Seafood platters (fried or steamed) include shrimp, snow crab, oysters, fish, and lump crab cakes. Purchase delicious seafood by the pound from Goatfeathers Seafood Market to enjoy in your cozy 30A vacation rental


Pescado Seafood Grill

This is definitely a 30A hot spot. Pescado’s not only serves delicious, fresh, Gulf-to-table cuisine, it has our favorite rooftop bar with incredible views. Dine on eclectic cuisine with delicately procured ingredients. What’s on our plate at Pescado? Start with the Charred Octopus, Chef’s Feast for the entrée, and Barton’s Choice Cocktail. Does it not sound intriguing? This spot is a must when dining on 30A.


Elmo’s Grill

Elmo’s Grill gives you all the beach vacation feels. Come as you are, bring friends, and have fun are the words this Gulf-to-table restaurant lives by. They specialize in seafood platters offering shrimp, fish, oysters, lobster, crab cakes, scallops, and gator. You can order your fresh seafood grilled, steamed, or fried. Walk right off the beach to a seafood feast at Elmo’s Grill.
